Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans by Choly Knight (Design Originals)

Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans

Slipping through our letterbox just a little too late to be included in our Minecraft Week last week, we've been taking a look at a rather awesome crafting book. Minecrafting book to be precise, as "Craft Projects for Minecraft and Pixel Art Fans" is a cornucopia of utterly amazing 'makes' for all you pixel art fans.

Though Minecraft predominantly takes centre stage here, this 'unofficial' book shows just how fans of the game get creative in other ways outside the game itself, making all sorts of brilliant toys, outfits and artwork to compliment their favourite game.

From the book you can find out how to build amazing stuff like:

  • Your own Minecraft Steve or Creeper "head"
  • Fantastic crochet projects - You can even create your own Crochet creeper (oh if only I wasn't such a rubbish crocheter!)
  • Brilliant lamps that look like Redstone, Gold or Diamond blocks
  • Awesome full-sized Minecraft tools 
It's a truly great set of makes that (for once) are actually feasible and easy (though obviously your little ones may need a bit of parental help with some of the trickier stuff). 

Charlotte's best bit: Charlotte wants to make her own Redstone lamp!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Ingenious ideas and brilliant ways to pay homage to one of the world's most entertaining games! Love this!
